Toyota Highlander - Toyota’s Crossover

Industry News

The 2010 Toyota Highlander is a functional, family friendly crossover that rides on a platform shared with the Camry and Avalon. With a base price of $25,855, the Highlander is one of the more affordable midsize SUVs and its good value over time. While the Highlander is a solid choice, it's good to keep it in mind that its reputation has been diminished by Toyota's highly publicized accelerator pedal recalls.

The 2010 Highlander comes in base, Sport, SE, and Limited Trims. The 2010 Highlander offers drivers strong engine power and a smooth ride, though most complain about its numb steering and sub-par handling. The 2010 Highlander base model comes with a 2.7-liter, 187 horsepower four cylinder engine paired with a six speed automatic transmission. Sport, SE, and Limited models upgrade to a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 270 horsepower and is paired with a five speed automatic.

According to the EPA, the four cylinder models achieve 20 miles per gallon in the city and 27 on the highway, while the two wheel drive V6 achieves a less than impressive 18 mph in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The exterior to the 2010 Highlander was redesigned in 2008, and is still perceived as bland at best. Inside, the Highlander's interior receives positive reviews for its family friendly versatility. The base model comes with two rows of seats, but Sport and Limited upgrade to three rows. Leather seating surfaces and heated front seats are optional for the Sport and standard on the Limited model.

The base comes with a CD player, auxiliary audio jack, power windows, and door locks. It also features a family friendly conversation mirror, which allows the driver to keep an eye on kids in the back.
